7 Benefits Of Using A Power Rack

Power Racks are a very common piece of exercise equipment in any serious home gym or commercial gym.

There are 7 excellent reasons for this…

  1. Power racks allow you to train solo in a safe environment.
  2. You can adjust the safety pins to just below your full range of motion – just in case you miss a lift, the pins can then catch the weight.
  3. You can workout with heavier weights than you normally would be able to if you didn’t use a power rack.
  4. Of course, you can also use dumbbells instead of the Olympic bar for those upper body workouts.
  5. Power racks can easily be used as squat racks.
  6. These racks are excellent for heavy partials – helping you to build up your strength as you test heavier weights in your workout sessions.
  7. Power racks are also excellent for functional isometrics.

The power rack is an effective exercise machine that is elegant in it’s simplicity.  But it is versatile enough that it can help you to achieve your workout goals safely.
